My grandparents had many stories of helping neighbors during World War II, a defining time for them. When some day we are telling our own grandchildren about World Pandemic I, I hope all of us will have stories of our actions during this time that we can be proud of.

I'm really enjoying the new #ICLR2020  website, and am having fun browsing the workshop & poster talks. Congrats to the organizers and speakers on what's happening so far in this all-virtual conference! Great job! @harvardnlp @shakir_za @kchonyc  @dawnsongtweets  @syhw  et al.

Getting to widespread AI adoption outside tech companies means solving new challenges. For example, we still need to get better at bridging Proof of Concept (PoC) and production. Here are my thoughts: @FortuneMagazine 

Justice is indivisible. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. -MLK

Congratulations the #Stanford2020  class that just graduated today! An online commencement wasn't what anyone had envisioned, but I am excited to see what you will accomplish and the contributions you'll make to this chaotic world. Proud of all of you!

Our new Natural Language Processing Specialization’s first two courses are now on @coursera ! You’ll build your technical foundations and work on projects ranging from sentiment analysis to language modeling to autocomplete. Check it out:

Congrats @karpathy  for being named a TR35 recipient! You can also listen to his interview with here: @deeplearningai_ 

Happy Juneteenth! Raising awareness this past month on Black lives matter was important. But what’s next is even more important: that we keep supporting it even years from now when it’s not a trending twitter topic. Racial justice will take years; lets be in it for the long haul.

The suspension of the H1B visa program is bad for the US, bad for innovation, and will shatter dreams and disrupt lives. As a former H1B visa holder, my heart goes out to all the families affected.

I would like to up-volt this message.


Announcing! Deep Learning on Coursera: Master Deep Learning, and build a career in AI!

Stephen Hawking once said, "I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first." RIP Professor Hawking, and may we all strive to live as fully as he did.

To all Researchers: If US Muslim ban remains, lets move our conferences elsewhere. Science must be open to all.

AI+ethics is important, but has been partly hijacked by the AGI (artificial general intelligence) hype. Let's cut out the AGI nonsense and spend more time on the urgent problems: Job loss/stagnant wages, undermining democracy, discrimination/bias, wealth inequality.

I often advise people to take on projects you're only 70% qualified for, but then learn like crazy to bridge that 30%.

I’m glad DeepNude is dead. As a person and as a father, I thought this was one of the most disgusting applications of AI. To the AI Community: You have superpowers, and what you build matters. Please use your powers on worthy projects that move the world forward.

It's not right for PhD programs to be accessible only to rich families. The current US proposal to tax tuition forgiveness is a huge step in that direction and will discourage many from pursuing graduate studies.

Social distancing is needed to keep us safe. So @landingAI  created this AI tool to help our customers in essential industries maintain #SocialDistancing  in the workplace. We hope many people can benefit from these ideas.
